About this Textbook

This textbook provides an overview of recent research taking a behavior analytic perspective on social and cultural issues, explaining and evaluating current theory and methodologies. The volume assists students with both learning and questioning current theory and methods, while developing their own research and practice to make contributions as engaged, informed citizens. Additionally, it supports and equips specialists intending to do research or practice with community and cultural-level systems. Contributors include several major scholars and practitioners researching scientifically guided, systemic, and ecologically valid efforts related to community health, sustainability, and social justice efforts, among other areas.

Among the topics discussed:

  • History and progress in cultural and community science
  • Applying behavioral science to large scale social changes
  • Global sustainability: a behavior analytic approach
  • Public policy advocacy in culturo-behavior science

Behavior Science Perspectives on Culture and Community serves as a timely and unique reference for an emerging sub-discipline, and will be useful for both students of behavior analysis and specialists working with communities and cultural-level systems.


About the authors

Traci M. Cihon is an Associate Professor in the Department of Behavior Analysis at the University of North Texas. Dr. Cihon received her MA in Psychology with a specialization in Behavior Analysis from the University of Nevada-Reno and completed her PhD in Special Education with an emphasis in Applied Behavior Analysis at The Ohio State University. At UNT she teaches Verbal Behavior, Introduction to Behavior Principles, Legal, Ethical and Professional Issues in Behavior Analysis, and she coordinates the Teaching Science Laboratory that is responsible for the delivery of instruction for undergraduate Introduction to Behavior Analysis courses. 
Mark A. Mattaini, DSW, ACSW, holds an emeritus appointment at Jane Addams College of Social Work, University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC), where he was previously director of the doctoral program. He has developed, implemented, and researched behavioral strategies for individual, family, organizational, community and policy level interventions in the US, Canada, and Latin America, increasingly emphasizing advocacy, accompaniment, and activism in recent years. Consistent with that emphasis, his recent scholarship has focused on nonviolent action supporting social justice, and behavioral systems science at the cultural level. He is a research affiliate of the UIC Center for Research on Violence, and has chaired 25 dissertations related to responses to social issues. Most of his Ph.D. graduates are engaged in research and practice with marginalized populations, including those victimized by—and perpetrating—violence, and in developing evidence-guided supports for young people experiencing homelessness and social exclusion. Dr. Mattaini is author or editor of 13 books, two of the most recent being Strategic Nonviolent Power: The Science of Satyagraha, and Leadership for Cultural Change: Managing Future Well-Being, as well as numerous other publications. Editor of the interdisciplinary journal Behavior and Social Issues, Dr. Mattaini has served on the editorial boards of multiple journals in behavior analysis and social work. ABAI Convention Program Board Coordinator from 2013-2017, he has also been a long-time member of the Board of Planners for Behaviorists for Social Responsibility, the oldest ABAI SIG.
